The Three Musketeers – Review

By Kate Maitland-Gleed

Score 5/5

After being betrayed in Venice the year before, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, The Three Musketeers (played by Matthew McFadyen, Ray Stevenson and Luke Evans), roam the streets of Paris, the exact place budding Musketeer, D’Artagnan (played by Logan Lerman) is heading. After showing off in front of them, D’Artagnan is welcomed aboard the well known group. Also catching eyes of a young, beautiful lady, he is more big headed than ever! With King Louis XIII (played by Freddie Fox) on the thrown, things are a little bit more random. Poor Louis is struggling with his Queen, Ann (played by Juno Temple), unable to show his affection for her. With a scenario that may make or break their love for each other, the Musketeers, now four, are summoned to retrieve some stolen diamonds, now in the possession of the Duke of Buckingham, the Musketeers sworn enemy. Will they do it or not???????

With the cinema quite empty, it gave me the impression that the film was going to be rubbish. That it was not! Even in the first opening scenes I was sitting on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. In my opinion, The Three Musketeers follow in the footsteps of the 2009 version of Sherlock Holmes. Historical, capturing the essence of the 18th century, but also very comedic. The impression I got of the Musketeers was a group of good friends having a bit of a laugh. Oh… With guns, swords and awesome gadgets!

The costumes were fabulous. Really fitting into the time period. Those, along with the settings, filmed in outstanding Venice and Paris, made this film what it is. Absolutely fantastic! With only a few children in the cinema and an adult humour content, I would suggest, if you have younger children, this film is to be watched with a older companion. With funnyish streaks from James Corden coming through, I would recommend this film to all my friends and family as I really, really enjoyed it! So go on… Go watch it!

I give this film:
